traditional craft
contemporary weaving


 
 
 
 
 

Each thread is calculated to bend over and under

Creating the structural bonds that form our fabrics

 
 

Observe that within the bends of interwoven threads

Lay the infinite potential for delicate pattern work

 

Resources are respectfully chosen

With a priority to source local and trusted organic/fair trade yarns.

 

Special colours are hand dyed

Foraged wild flowers and plant extracts are used for small batch dyeing

 

The loom is warped and threaded

Each piece consisting of hundreds of threads

 

Every textile is woven by hand and treadled by foot

To get a textile just right, it may be woven and un-woven, many times

 

All pieces are finished with a hand twisted fringe, or stitch

Where it is then washed, dried in the sun (or by the fire), and pressed
